Full review, sample videos, specs and manual for the ITRUE X6D Dual Channel Dash Camera
ITRUE X6D is a small yet powerful dual channel car dashboard camera that features slim and stealth design with round edges. It is packed with a host of functions to give complete protection to your vehicle. Both the cameras, front and rear, can be installed easily using 3M adhesive tape that comes with the unit. Both these cameras work simultaneously to ensure that nothing goes unrecorded whether it is in front of your car or behind it. Make sure you clean the windshield properly before fixing the tape on it. Also, adjust the angle vertically as per your convenience.
Right from memory card to car charger to extension cable, everything is included in the package. So, you are all ready to use it as soon as you unbox it. The unit itself comes with 1 year warranty against any hardware issues, and customer support is also reported to be superior; customer emails are typically responded in no more than 24 hours.
Once installed, ITRUE X6D dash cam starts recording automatically when you start the car ignition. The loop recording function ensures that the recording continues unstopped even when the memory card runs out of free space. This is achieved through automatic rewriting of old files on the card. However, in case of collision, the inbuilt G-Sensor locks the recorded videos and protects them against regular rewriting during the process of relooping.
Though a 16 GB microSD card comes free with the unit, it actually supports a card of up to 64 GB. A microSD or TF card of class 10 or higher is recommended by the company.
Powered by 6-layer glass lens, extremely powerful sensor and Wide Dynamic Range technology, X6D is most admired for its sharp and clear recording. Ultra wide angle lens of 170 degrees in the front camera is wide enough to cover almost till both sides of the road. It records full HD 1920×1080 pixel videos at a frame rate of 30 FPS. The rear camera however is VGA but that should not matter much keeping in mind its limited use. The unit also does not have night vision built into it but you can manage to get reasonably good quality clips with your vehicle’s headlights turned on.
ITRUE X6D can record as long as it can get power. It does have a battery in it but that is only meant to save files in case of emergency. So, whenever in use, you should always keep it connected to an external power source. You can also use it for recording while your vehicle is parked but for that you will have to hardwire it to your car’s battery. You will need to install the hardware kit that comes with this camera.
The unit also supports GPS or Global Positioning System for keeping track of location and speed of the vehicle. However, you need to buy GPS antenna for that which is sold separately.
The LCD display screen is 2.4 inches big. Operating Temperature ranges from 10 degrees Fahrenheit to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. It is advised to remove the dashcam from the windshield if you are parking the vehicle in direct sunlight.
